We have a requirement to authenticate users against Active Directory LDS in our SP 2010 farm and also import their profiles in user profile store. We are able to setup FBA using AD membership provider to authenticate against AD LDS.
I am interested in importing the users in AD LDS to SharePoint user profile store.
When I try to create a new connection the options that I am provided are
1. Active Directory
2. Active Directory Logon Data
3. Active Directory Resource.
4.SunOne (LDAP) 5.2
5.Novell eDirectory (LDAP) 8.7.3
6.IBM Tivoli (LDAP) 6.2
If I select any of the options 1/2/3 I am asked to provide Forest Name and Domain Controller name. Since this is AD LDS there is no Forest or Domain Controller. It’s just a generic LDAP server.
So the question I am struggling with is: what are the steps required to create a User Profile Synchronization connection to import users from AD LDS and not from AD DS?
We are not able to find any information how to do that in SP2010… From other blog entries I am assuming it was supported and documented for MOSS2007.
There is NO “LDAP Directory” connection type in SP2010.
I am wondering if this is supported in SP2010.
